A Sweet Centerpiece

Last year when I was helping my mother-in-law and father-in-law move out of their home of 55 years to move to a retirement community, my mother-in-law gave me several beautiful things from her kitchen.  Among them was this silver candleabra.  It was very tarnished and I wasn’t sure I would be able to resurrect it.  With some elbow grease I was able to get it to shine again, but there are a few imperfections here and there.  I have a tea cup collection and I decided it would be cute to put the cups on top of the candleabra and use them as containers for a flower arrangement.  My mini roses are just the right size for the cups and the arrangement turned out very sweet and feminine.
